I’ve been spending a lot of quiet time with my Poppa lately. Someone recently told me, “You don’t call Him that.” It bothered me for a long time, causing me to question if perhaps I was wrong. I wasn’t wrong. I’m very thankful for the relationship I have with my Heavenly Father and the closeness we share. Some of the same people that have tried to cause questions like that or similar ones, are the same ones that have my number on speed dial for a call or text when it comes to a prayer request. Why is that? They must believe that on some level God hears and honors my prayers. If only they understood they could have that relationship with God too.
God is teaching and revealing so much to me during my morning time in His presence. There has to be a thirst for that knowledge that most don’t have. That makes me sad, why wouldn’t you want more of the One that gave His life for yours. I want to be like a sponge that continues to absorb, soaking up every bit of wisdom, knowledge, anything, and everything the Lord has for me. People say, “You’ve changed.” I hope so. I’m not perfect, but I am forgiven. I’m focused on my “Poppa’s” business. I’m centered on my destiny at hand. Higher in Him means a decrease in me and the things of the world. I’m okay with that. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
